Since the above Minutes were written later Van Couver Island Papers have arrived, giving an account of the accident by which the Policeman Currey was killed & of the Coroners Inquest. Instead therefore of writing to the Governor send the Newspaper to Mr Pease, returning the enclosures in his letter as requested.
